  Seahawks | Phillip Dorsett dealing with prolonged foot issue    Wed Aug 26, 08:21 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett (foot) has been dealing with a foot issue for some time, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Aug. 26. 'It might be the kind of situation we've got to monitor and see what it takes to keep him feeling good because he has had it for a while,' Carroll said.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has always had speed to his game but injuries and inconsistencies have hampered his production as a pro. The Seahawks know that he's dealt with this foot injury for some time so they'll work best to manage his usage.

  Seahawks | Phillip Dorsett can still fly    Thu Aug 20, 08:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett is 'the fastest guy we've ever had here,' according to head coach Pete Carroll.'He runs in the time realms we don't even think really exist, 4.2s and stuff. In our systems with (Russell Wilson), the way Russ likes to bomb the football, he's a big factor for us. ... He's doing really well. He's gotten behind (the defense) a couple of times,' Carroll told the team's website.

Footballguys view: Dorsett could help Russell Wilson get a few long scores this year after the play breaks down, but otherwise he'll be a fantasy non-factor. He's battling David Moore for snaps as the #3 receiver, with the possibility of Josh Gordon or Antonio Brown joining the team still in the background.

  Seahawks | Phillip Dorsett happy to sign with Seattle    Tue May 12, 04:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Phillip Dorsett said Tuesday, May 12, he feels he's now in the proper system after turning down an offer from the Seahawks to re-sign with the New England Patriots a year ago. 'I feel like this is the right offense for me,' he said. 'Obviously I know (QB Russell Wilson), and he's a great quarterback. The way he plays quarterback and the way this offense is fits my skill set.'

Footballguys view: Wilson keeps plays alive and can launch passes down the field with ease. Dorsett has largely disappointed in his stops around the NFL but he still has elite speed. Expect Seattle to use Dorsett to take the top off the defense in 2020.

  Seahawks | Phillip Dorsett heading to Seattle    Tue Mar 24, 03:00 PM

Free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, March 24. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dorsett was one of the speed receivers available in free agency. The Seahawks have size in DK Metcalf and quickness in Tyler Lockett. Dorsett will work his way onto the depth chart behind those two.

  NFL | Several interested in Phillip Dorsett    Mon Mar 16, 03:06 PM

Free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett (Patriots) said he is receiving preliminary interest from the New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Las Vegas Raiders.

Footballguys view: Dorsett is a speedy veteran who could still take the top off the defense. With Robby Anderson likely to make the most money, Dorsett provides any team that doesn't get Anderson a discount option.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett to have open mind    Sun Mar 8, 12:08 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Phillip Dorsett said he will go into free agency with an open mind because of the reduced role he received with the Patriots this past season.

Footballguys view: Dorsett could return to the Patriots but we think another team might take a chance on the speedy veteran. There's not too many super-fast receivers in this free agent class, and that benefits guys like Dorsett, Robby Anderson and Travis Benjamin.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett unlikely to return    Mon Jan 13, 12:43 AM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett will likely depart in free agency during the offseason, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Reiss, who notes that Dorsett's role as a receiver decreased as the season wore on.

Footballguys view: Dorsett has been a bust of a first round pick and a very limited return on Jacoby Brissett in a trade. He'll likely be a fourth or fifth receiver wherever he ends up.

  Patriots | New England falls in playoff opener    Sat Jan 4, 11:46 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 20 of his 37 passes for 209 yards and an interception in a 20-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round Saturday, Jan. 4.

  Patriots | Week 17 final stats for Patriots    Sun Dec 29, 04:17 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 16-of-29 passes for 221 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in an upset loss at home to the Miami Dolphins. RB Sony Michel led the way with 74 rushing yards on 18 attempts while scoring a touchdown, with RB Rex Burkhead adding 48 yards on six carries. WR Phillip Dorsett had a team-high 50 yards on one grab with four targets, while LB/FB Elandon Roberts had a 38-yard touchdown on his only touch. RB James White also added a score while finishing with three catches for 33 yards, and WR Julian Edelman managed three grabs for 26 yards on seven targets. WR N'Keal Harry also had three catches for 29 yards on seven targets while running once for nine yards.

Footballguys view: The Patriots offense continued to disappoint, coming up short in a game against one of the worst defenses in the league. Michel was serviceable for fantasy today and that's about it as linebacker/fullback Elandon Roberts caught one of the two Brady touchdowns. The Patriots fall to the third seed and will have to play next week and both Brady and the offense look mortal, and of course talk of Josh McDaniels as a head coaching prospect will be heard even though this was arguably the biggest struggle of his Patriots career.

  Patriots | Phillip Dorsett listed as questionable    Fri Nov 22, 06:16 PM

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu are both game-time decisions this week. If one is able to go they'll be a solid flex play, if both can go it will be helpful for Tom Brady's outlook, but make it more difficult to project the passing game distribution.
